NOW, back to my original train of thought!!

Recently, I was out and about and literally I felt that familiar sharp poke in the side of my rib, ladies you know what I mean, it’s cold, it’s unaccepted and it’s annoying a.h..Ladies, now, I know you ALL know that feeling so I am so NOT alone on this one…… LOLOL!! As I sat there, I had to pull out that frigid piece of metal from my bra and was quite angry that I would be left with one firm shaped round and perfect breast and one a little less firm because it is the underwire that had to be removed rather quickly, otherwise, the pain would become much more intense..

So here is where the revelation came in:

A couple of days later, I had to do laundry and was about to throw out that once beautiful, firm fitting, double d bra with the pretty lace and perfect hold, when I had a thought; matter of fact, it was as if a light bulb went off in my head and I thought to myself, why NOT turn it into a sports bra and I will just wear it under my real sports bra but it could be doubled for extra support………. That’s when this message came to mii that I want to share with you!!

Often times, we as humans are so quick to throw something away that we NO longer find useful because like in this case of my wired under garment, something went wrong and ultimately I felt as if the whole thing NO longer had any value..

But just like that – I realized I could utilize my bra for something else and it could be salvaged after all!!

My point and message to you is – do NOT be so quick to throw things away (this includes friendships, relationships, loves etc) that can be used just because there is a slight malfunction..

See, there are times when we are being redirected but so many of us are so one track minded that we cannot fathom the endless possibilities out there as well as the infinite amount of functions one object/ thing/ relationship may offer because we do NOT care to see the potential.. Today, my hope is that in spite of how your situation may look, you will be encouraged enough to

Carpe Diem ~dd3

and be as optimistic as possible while you look at every angle of a problem, circumstance so on and so forth!!

I know, I know, it is often difficult to be optimistic in our every day lives but I promise you, if you try it, you will find #success ALL around you as your boobies receive double hold-age, firm, power for your double D’s.. (This last part is a joke but as I LOLOLOL, I hope you found this message encouraging, insightful and it spoke to your soul)

Have a #blessed nite Fam..

 

Stay tuned for the upcoming message about my book of poetry and special quotes “A Woman’s Intuition”

The grateful and optimistic one

Why Am I Still Up?? LoLoL 

Many times we let small things get in the way of the Destiny that we often dream about, that we often pray about or like in my case that we spend a decade writing  about!!

Recently, I opened up to my business manager and totally shared details of my ongoing saga of the powerful, Sexxxii, brilliant man who captured my heart, first through my creative nature as I wrote about this pseudo relationship between him and the main character of my novel for years.. Then in person, just being him, smiling his beautiful smile, giving to those around him openly, rather freely and then she says, “AniYa, my mother always says, when you pray to GoD for something; believe you will get it and don’t push it away……”

“OMG’, I thought, ‘was she in my head or did she just have more wisdom than I fathomed??!!” Alas, I just realized that I didn’t have to question anything anymore and she was rite!!

Back to how I feel and how when our eyes met across the room, I forgot everything that ever was the matter before.. It was like I knew he was there, standing, chatting, being — him..

Him, the person I saw again after a year, looking ever so amazing and a tad bit dishelved, he didn’t have to be perfect for anyone else, because when I looked into his eyes, this time I saw something different!!

How does he know what goes on in my mind, my dreams?? How does he know the inner depths of mii?? How is it that I would drop everything to be near him, what kind of hold of does he even have on mii??

As I looked beyond the past and waved back, I noticed that words were NOT needed nor much movement..

Is this what LoVe is really like??

Respect, passion, secret messages of darn it’s been a while I just want to hug you.. It’s cool, I see you working the room, I see you doing you!! I’ll lay low for a minute but when I speak, this time it will be intentional..

Finally, I found more truth and naturally it excites mii!! I am more at peace totally, infinitely, he is revealing more to mii!!

Why am I up so late??

The more I’m up, is the more I create!!

  • Stay tuned for much more if what is turning out to be something I am coming to truly appreciate.. It’s ALL about Him & Mii!!

Being an Overcomer..

Wow, it has been forever since I have blogged on here; but guess what?? It won’t be that long until I blog again.. LOLOL!!

So, yesterday I had every intention to blog about one of the most real, most controversial, most unexpected questions I have ever been asked on a radio interview I did years ago..

I started writing and had to save it because I am still on the campaign trail and had a million things to take care of; therefore, I decided to edit it and put it on the shelf so that I could add my pix as well as personal touch today so I could post it and get back to work but GoD had another plan for my message today!!

It is the message of watching one that I LoVe(d) dearly, suffer, almost die in the hands of her husband, overcome and get back to living L.I.F.E as if NOTHING ever tried to destroy her..

My disclaimer is the following: I will NOT share any names but this is ALL true accounts that I am sharing with you today..

Imagine, I was only 10, in the essence of my youth with the world so bright before mii; as I had my family and friends all around mii!! I studied hard as I was taught too, played games with neighborhood kids, attended dance classes and ultimately didn’t have much to worry about until she went and got married.. My best friend at the time, though she was much older than mii, ok about a dozen years or so but it didn’t matter because she told everyone that she was really my mother and we did everything together.. We laughed and joked as we were in and out of Fl., Haiti and New York City, yup, it was awesome that she came to live with us, her family!!

“Ki sa, ammmwwwaaayyyyy… Pou ki sa li fe sa mem?? Et ti moun yo?? Eske yo ok??”

What I have said was what I heard from the elders, as they were inundated with questions and fear as to their relatives safety as well as the safety of one child she held in her arms, that were so very fragile with blood pumping out of one, and the baby that was still nestled in her womb, with no knowledge of the pain her very own father was inflicting on her mother and possibly on her eldest sister…..

I sat in fear, wide – eyed, shaking and trying to fight back the tears that wanted to explode  from their dwelling, I had to be strong, I had to remain calm!! I had to fight the monster who was trying to kill the ones I loved so much.. But how could I do anything about the situation, by this point, I was only like 11 and had NO way of saving anyone because I couldn’t even save myself..

Would she be ok?? Would he go to jail?? How were the little ones?? Will I ever see them again?? How could this be happening?? We were always sooooooooo #Happy as a closed knit loving family??

Friends, the situation I am referring to is one of many that would occur between a very close relative of mine who chose to love and honor her abusive, alcoholic, vindictive husband whom she didn’t know of his nature prior to them saying their vows..

The Lord truly has an interesting way of bringing things to one’s remembrance as I forgot about the many years of the abuse that this person endured, until I saw him again, in a family photo with the same family he tried to kill 2 decades prior!! How could he stand there, smiling and taking pictures with them I thought?? Does he NOT have any shame?? Where is his sense of pride, surely he could have sent a check or bouquet of of flowers but Lord, he really showed up to his first borns graduation and he is acting like he did something, as if he contributed much more than his semen!!

I close here, I began to think of the things he did to my family, what he did to my non – existent LoVe L.I.F.E because every time I thought of the abuse, the drinking, the 911 calls, how he intimidated others with his education and power, I wanted to throw up; instead let mii tell you what GoD did…….

He showed mii how beautiful they were!!

GoD showed mii that they did endure hell on earth for many years but that NEVER broke her or the children, he could have accomplished his demented plan of killing them off but it didn’t happen for a reason that still boggles mii..

Less than 8 years later, the same one who almost died, called mii to tell mii that I was the Only Christian in the Family and I had to Pray for Sandy, my Beautiful Cousin who was shot in the head and was fighting for her L.I.F.E!!

Why was Sandy taken, yet she lived after receiving multiple stab wounds, being hospitalized and having to get more stitched than I could count??

Though I don’t know the reason, I know this….. As I looked at the picture again and again, I saw what determination looks like, I understood what being an overcomer truly means; furthermore, I realized that it doesn’t matter how many times he tried to take her {them} out.. What matters is that she and they are still standing..

Today, I can share this tid bit about mii and NOT cry my eyes out too and that is because I am also an OVERCOMER!! Though I was NOT almost killed by a man that was supposed to love mii and be there for mii for our eternities, I found a way to overcome the ones that appeared so kind and innocent and wait for what  was (is) truly mine to be..

Friends, rejoice when you too have OVERCOME.. I know I will NOW and forever more!!

To you, my family.. Congratulations again on your Victory!!

Yours Truly,

AniYa A.                                                         The one who watched for years

Psalms 41

It was a windy day and it was as if a tornado was sweeping through The Treasure Coast. I had just volunteered to take a friend to the doctor as her baby (whom I loved very much) was not feeling good and though it was a nasty day out, I could not see the baby suffering. Upon me dropping my friend off at the doctor with her precious infant, I decided to take a trip to visit Mama Hazel and Mama Linda of  In the Image of Christ in Ft. Pierce, anytime I was going through something I knew going to visit these two would change my perspective and I would feel better too!

Moments after I walked in Mama Linda had me to sit down and Mama Hazel shared that they were having an event and that she had just picked the Bible verse to add to the program; without hesitation, she asked me if I wanted to hear it?

I said, yes I would!

“Psalms 41 says: Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness. I said, Lord, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee. Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish? And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity: his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; when he goeth abroad, he telleth it. All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt. An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more.  Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. But thou, O Lord, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them. By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me. And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.”

Mama Hazel read this scripture with so much joy in her heart and as she spoke Mama Linda smiled her sweet smile, while I thought to myself, “How did she know I needed to hear that at this exact second?” That’s when it became rather clear that it wasn’t her who knew but it was GoD in HIS Divine Mercy and Grace.

* * *

It’s like this, my brethren while we are going through the most horrendous situations in our lives we tend to want to give up because we do NOT expect hardships NOR do we expect to make it through to the other side of pain. That day I stopped into the headquarters of one of my most favorite Ministries, I just wanted to be in the presence of women whom share pieces of their hearts with me. These women are so loving, compassionate and caring that I could be boo whoo crying and ALL they have to do is look into my eyes and say a simple word. Tonight, this message is for someone going through a battle in decision making.

This message is NOT a typical message that I would write as it is actually going to give someone an answer they have been seeking GoD for, here is the Divine Revelation of why this is going to answer a question for you! NOT only is it Divinely Appointed for me to share it before the midnight hour but it is also because you have been wanting to go into one direction, maybe into a ministry that you had your heart set on but you have been conflicted in your spirit as now you are changing your mind but are NOT sure if you are making the right choice. Tonight, the Lord is saying, come to HIM, sit still in HIS presence and know that HE is here with you! You will get the sign you have been seeking and it has to do with helping those in NEED of what you can help them with.

YOU, yes YOU, have a special gift that brightens others days when you are near and sometimes when you are NOT making others smile, you feel down and out. Wow, do you know what I am talking about? I believe YOU do…… The Lord does and did know you would read this and HE is saying it’s ok, let HIM HELP YOU!

{To Mama Hazel and Mama Linda, I don’t know if you understand how much you have encouraged me throughout the years but that day was sooooooo special to me and I will never ever ever forget it and I pray for you 2 always too}

Have a #Blessed night.

AniYa A.

 

 

Studying

Studying, Studying, Studying

This morning as I was preparing myself for a day which I knew I had so much to tackle, the word came and I couldn’t be more pleased.. See, when I have a lot on my mind, I sometimes zone out and daydream of a better world, a better place, a much better outcome!! I guess it started many years ago as a child and I recall getting in trouble in school especially because I was always zoning out and often times I believe that my teachers may have thought that I had an issue with attention or something like that..

Truth be told, I was frustrated with what was around me because I envisioned a better L.I.F.E, then confirmation came when I received a word from an older Jewish man whom shared that I would be somebody one day!! I will write out the entire scenario again and blog it, in the interim, I have the following that I had to share today..

See, Mr. A. told mii at the mere age of 12 maybe 13 that I would endure alot and I would be labeled as a “statistic” in the future and that I had the power within to overcome my trials and tribulations!! He also went on to say, if I educated myself and kept going forward NO matter what many doors would open and I would become whomever I wanted to be…….. By the time I was 15 my Guidance Counselor Mr. M. shared that I had enough high school credits to graduate by the time I was 16, but he gave mii the option of staying back and spending the year with my graduating class or going forward and skipping my Junior year of high school.. I thought about what that would mean and whether or NOT I had the ability to become someone, I stopped and wondered how I would be alone without any friends or relatives to make mii smile or piss mii off, I stopped for one more moment and recalled that I would be losing out on a whole lot because even at that age (15) I knew that opportunities did NOT come multiple times!! Though Mr. M. told mii to go home and think about my next step, I ran back to his office after taking a few steps into the hallway, headed towards the exit and said, “Please tell mii what I need to do to Graduate…..” The tears escaped their holding place and I recall my heart beating rather quickly as I made a decision that I could NOT take back!!

Today, I have gone through many ups and downs, I have had many strange battles to fight, I have been pushed to the max and back but friends, the thing I know to be true is if you are persistent you can and will make it!! The Word was soooooooooo powerful today that I couldn’t think about doing much more other than sharing it with you because NOT only have I studied to show myself approved (2 Timothy 2:15) but there are many of you who wonder whether studying, working hard, going forward towards the unknown is even worth it; I am here to share that it is.. Take a step in FAITH today (Hebrews 11:1, 1 Timothy 4:12, John 6:35), do what your heart tells you!!

I end here, I left the high school I was at only to return to the Christian private high school I had attempted to run away from a year or so earlier, under the teaching of a phenomenal teacher Mrs. S. who also happened to be a Pastors wife, I learned many lessons and though I had a long journey ahead of mii, I recalled certain Biblical principles she shared including but NOT limited to my favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 6: 10 – 20 and much more to this very day!!

Know this my friends and brethren, ALL is possible when you believe, I have a really impressive resume as I have accomplished many great things in my day, but I ask thee would I be able to share any of my accomplishments had I NOT Studied, Studied, Studied and also worked very hard……… Continue to follow your hearts, work hard and don’t forget to say a prayer or two every now and then..

Blessings to You ALL,

Your Sister in Christ
